Cleansers -Olay - Daily Facials Express - All Skin Types

I got these in Normal/Dry skin version.Packaging is a nice blue foil wrapper with a resealable opening.The scent of the cloths are pleasant and not too overpowering.Good for days when you simply are too lazy to wash your face or too tired before bed.Not bad although i still prefer the original Daily Facials where you have to wet before using it.These are convenient too as you can stash one inside your bag.
I picked this up last month when i saw them on sale at my local drugstore.I was looking for a good powder brush and being on a tight budget,i decided to give Ecotools a shot. I chose the blush brush instead as the powder brush is too big for my liking.It feels like an expensive brush as the soft bristles glides on my face.Love it! I also love the ziploc-esque case it comes with and i use it to store the brush and my EL concealer brush as well.The extra pocket on the back can be used to store more stuffs like q tips or cotton wool. I would say get one if you haven not!
Hmm.. This reminds me of Clinique's Pore Minimiser Thermal Active Skin Refiner.But this is 10 times better compared to Clinique.I got a very bad reaction with the Clinique product as it burned my skin and gives me pimples.I also found dead ants inside the cap so i guess it must contain some sugar.Hmm.. On the other hand,i was rather impressed with Regenerist Thermal Skin Polish! The heat sensation was brief but a pleasant experience.It provides gentle exfoliation and the smell was nice.My forehead feels ultra smooth after one use but my hope is that it will work wonders for my acne prone cheek area.This has Glycolic Acid whereas Clinique doesn't. My HG and i will buy again!
A soap will always be a soap regardless of what they call or claimed it to be like beauty bar..soap free..etc..etc..I picked a pack of these Quench bars because i was kinda curious and just wanna give it a shot. My initial reaction was that it will be too drying.But i was rather surprised that it leaves behind a film of moisture.Scent-wise,its a tad strong but in a good way.Very refreshing.The plastic wrapper was a gorgeous purple but the box that holds the soap was plain boring. Overall,i will buy it again.
Ok the packaging here says - Clearasil Pimple Treatment Cream (Vanishing). This is my first time trying out a Clearasil product.Honestly,i m so sick of trying out pimple creams and gels as i hate the drying effects of Benzoyl Peroxide.However,this one has Sulphur in it and i read somewhere that Sulphur is good for acne. So far,this stuff works ok but i just hate the smell.I didn't know Sulphur smell this bad.Trust me,it smells like fart.:-/ I m still hoping to find a really good pimple cream but until then,we'll see how this one goes..
Let me start off by saying that i love these masques!!!! I have used MJ masque since i was a teen.The best thing about them is they are super cheap,comes in interesting packettes and they work.:-) One of my fave are Blemish Mud with Aloe Vera and Willow.Omg..it smells like bleach and it was a pain in the ass to wash off but it makes my skin super smooth and super clean. The dead sea anti stress mud is also good.I don't really fancy the Sauna masque with the hot earth thingy..i got breakouts from using that.I've also tried the Men's Peel Off with Spearmint..SUCKS! My skin burned like hell and i have to wash it off right away..was red as a lobster.:-/ Overall,i love their stuffs.There are hits and misses so choose the ones that's right for you.Makes me wanna get the whole box of my fave ones so i have an endless supply.:-)
I just bought this 2 days ago.This is my 2st time using an Olay toner and somehow i m liking it.My experience with Clinique toners were anything but terrible! This one smells good and just like the name itself,refreshing!
Shampoo -Clairol - Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Moisturizing Shampoo

Whoa....5000 rabbits killed because of this? :-/ Anyway,its the scent that attracts me to this shampoo and the conditioner.
I have been using this product for months now and i love it.Its easy to apply and covers beautifully.I usually just apply my sunscreen,let it absorb for a moment and then dab with tissue to remove any moisture before applying this.Sometimes,i skip foundation altogether and just use this because its all i need to cover some acne marks. Great product.
Sunscreen -Banana Boat - Sun Wear Faces Daily Sunblock Lotion SPF 30

I got this sunscreen few days ago.Previously,i was using Faces SPF 23 and it was good.But i saw this and i decided to try it out since my Faces SPF 23 is finished. What i really love about this is the coconut scent.The lotion is great although i felt a slight warm sensation when i applied this on.
This really works to my surprise. I have used Clinique's Anti Blemish spot gel and Night Treatment gel which sucks by the way.And Origins pimple gel was also just not working it.All in all,i wasted so much money on them. I tried my sister's Oxy 5% and i was surprised although skeptical at first.I tried it again and again and it wonderfully shrinks those pimples each time i used it. The things i don't like is the chalky residue it left behind after i applied it.Also,the tube is really weird cos its hard to squeeze out the cream at times.Once,i squeeze it and a blob spurted out and almost got into my eye. x D
Lotions/ Creams -Vaseline - Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning lotion

Ok i bought this like a year ago and its still somewhere inside my wardrobe.Here's why : It moisturises but not as good as Jergens Shea Butter.Also i hate the smell of this lotion which is sort of like chocolate milk that has turned sour.The flip top cap was also lousy and overall it left me feeling sticky,icky and smelling horrible. Enough said.
I received a sample of this foundation when i bought the Blemish Cover Stick.I find the texture very runny and the coverage very sheer,almost like a tinted moisturiser.Ok but not my type. However,i am not really loving the scent.This foundation smells weird.I m ok with the Oil Free Even Finish liquid which smells nicer.
Treatments (Eye) -Estee Lauder - Stress Relief Eye Mask

I used this some time back and recently while at the department store,i was tempted to get another box but i didn't. The reason for that is because this eye mask doesn't really do what it is supposed to.I agree with all the other reviewers that it doesn't do anything for dark circles.I just find that it makes the undereye area more moisturized and plumper. Pros - Gorgeous green packaging Provides moisture and hydrates really well Cons - Expensive Does nothing for dark circles Difficult to separate the mask from plastic mold
My first encounter with Polo Sport was way back in 1999 when i was 15.A guy in my class wore this and was happily offering free spritzes to the other boys except me of course. So,i got my dad to buy this and yeah i liked it.Very nice and refreshing and masculine.Maybe i might consider repurchasing it and maybe not cos this scent reminds me of 1999 which brings back too much bad memories.
